In the game of smartphone sales across the planet, Android and iOS happen to be the only operating systems that seem to capture the sales headlines and update announcements. But among all that noise, Microsoft has been trying to appease its existing customers and woo in more customers with its new devices.
Contrary to belief, Windows Phones are still selling better in developing countries. It may not have features that made Android or iOS a major blockbuster in the industry, but it certainly has found a way to stay different from everyone else. Here are some reasons why Windows Phones are much better choices over the competition in the market.
Quick, Simple And doesn't Hang Up on You:
The Windows Phone has a simple UI that only consists of boxes, unlike Android and iOS where every app is listed either in menus or in app drawers. And it loads in a jiffy. To add to its better functioning, the phone rarely hangs midway while you're busy messaging or tweeting.
Any Windows Phone device that is in the market has a battery pack that can run for almost 13 to 14 hours on a single charge. And heavy users are met with a dead phone within 10 hours. This is all thanks to the processing power within the OS that limits the unnecessary usage of apps during standby mode.
It's sturdy.. built to last!
Windows Phone devices in the market were first introduced by Nokia who was already industry leaders in phone manufacturing. The Lumia range of phones was built to last the harsh treatments that users may accidentally subject the device to. Neither have these phones lost the beauty that made them visually attractive nor have they become completely obsolete.
They have better cameras, especially for the Pro!
Lumia phones have been known to have the best cameras in the market when it comes to producing professional level photographs. The Nokia Lumia 1020 is one such device which heralded the Lumia Camera with controls that helped a professional to adjust the ISO, Exposure and Shutter Speed. These features were later provided to all Windows devices running Windows 8.1
Standing Apart From The Crowd:
There are still a majority of user out there who feel that Windows Phones bring a comfort of usage that Android fails to give. And this is where Windows has gained its upper hand. Swipe keyboards (that are now available for iPhones), customizable Action Centre, Lock Screen options that could provide Facebook or Twitter feeds are what make this OS unique. This platform was also the first to bring Glance Screen technology to devices that were equipped with AMOLED screens.
